I just returned from an awesome weekend, so naturally I had to share. Most anyone who considers themselves to be a horror fan knows the significance of the Monroeville Mall to horror history. It's the place where, nearly thirty years ago, the mall was overrun with hoards of the undead. This year it happened again, setting a new world record, and bringing fans of zombie goodness together for one hell of a time. Pittsburgh’s The It's Alive!
NECA is fully on with their upcoming Aliens Vs. Predator: Requiem line, as can be evidenced by the new pics they sent out today of the PredAlien, the hybrid creature we saw at the tail end of Alien Vs. Predator. Not that you want to be reminded of that crapfest. Check out the pics below and hit NECA’s official site for more details!
Arrow in the Head, being BFF with director Eric Red, got the first look at some new shots from the man’s latest film 100 Feet, which stars Famke Janssen and will be making itself known at this year’s AFM, kicking off today.
As the song goes, it’s the most wonderful time of the year... Of course, the song I refer to is about Christmas (ugh), but I’m talking about the only holiday that really matters: HALLOWEEN! Today is the day for ghouls and fiends and demons of all kind to walk the earth, and I would just like to personally thank each and every one of them for their constant inspiration throughout the years!
As if you needed another reason to go see the Robert Zemeckis CG Beowulf, right? The film opens in theaters on November 16th, and Coming Soon discovered that a new trailer for the J.J. Abrams-produced monster movie, up till now known as Cloverfield by most, will premiere in front of Beowulf, at which time its title will finally be revealed.
A bit of time has gone by since we heard from the New Zealand film The Tattooist ("Tons of Tattooist Goodies!" – May 2007), but things seem to be going well for the project, which stars Dragon Wars lead Jason Behr, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
A cross between Jacob’s Ladder and Marathon Man, eh? Not what I would expect from a modern-day retelling of Edgar Allan Poe’s The Tell-Tale Heart, but that’s how Scott Free is selling it.
Now this is what I call a Halloween treat! Details have emerged about George Romero’s planned sequel to Diary of the Dead (review) which we first mentioned a few days back ("Romero’s Multiple Diaries" – October 2007).
When it was announced, informally, that Brett Ratner wouldn’t be helming the Escape From New York remake ("Ranter Won’t Escape New York" – October 2007), I was all smiles from ear to ear.
So maybe the delay in getting Manhunt 2 out to the masses wasn’t such a bad thing after all? I mean, they got to have it in stores a full two days before Halloween, which isn’t the most undesirable release date. It’s just too bad that the version we did finally get has been censored.
We may never get to see Paul W.S. Anderson's blood, so it looks like the gore in Aliens vs Predator: Requiem will have to suffice.
Dread Central & Pit of Horror are proud to announce even more guests, bands and events for next year's Fear Fest 2! Look at all we've added! Chris Sarandon (Fright Night, Nightmare Before Christmas, Child's Play) Renny Harlin (NOES 4, Die Hard 2, Cliffhanger) Kim Myers (NOES 2)
Today we received word that yet more information has leaked around the top secret movie, Bryan Loves You, the story of death and murder at the hands of a fanatical cut.
Last week we noticed that Xavier Gens' Frontière(s) went missing from After Dark Horror Fest's final roster of films that will start playing nationwide on November 9th. It was a pretty sad turn of events simply because the movie was about Neo-Nazis and extreme gore.
Robert Kurtzman’s Precinct 13 just keeps getting bigger and bigger! Today it was announced that the former Fangoria Comics title Bump is making its way to the big screen and a star has been cast!
